Best way to record a live show to be mixed later?

I did a lot of searching on here and didn't find much that helped, so if I'm missing something feel free to point me in that direction! I put out an album a little over two months ago, and a filmmaker friend of mine is looking for something to shoot. We're talking about doing a live performance of t...

I'd use the D6 for the back mic, because in the catalog it says you can put it anywhere and it sounds great. Boy that gave me a laugh. +1 on moving the mic back though. This thread is oddly relevant to me as I spent today messing around with some drum mic setups. I've got a D112, and normally I sti...

I don't have experience with the Solaris, but I have an MXL 4000. I got it mainly because I don't have any mics that aren't cardoid so I want the options. This mic sounds great on everything I've put it on. Putting the mic in omni and putting it in front of the 12th fret of an acoustic yields the be...

But the essential design remains the same - and is found in the Nady CM-90 and CAD GXL1200 as well. Does having the same basic design mean that the MXL 603 and the CM90 are the same mic soundwise? I have an old pair of CM90s that came with a drum mic kit when I was first starting, and I have two MX...

I'm starting to do cheap gear video reviews!

I've been reading the TOMB for years now, and I've learned endless things about gear and recording techniques. Unfortunately the knowledge that comes from this place doesn't come with a pay raise, so I've gotten much better at recording but I'm still using pretty low-priced gear. However I've gotten...

Lotus, that's a beautiful collection of mics! Any personal favorites in there? They look like they might have an interesting story behind them.

Song with small stylophone part - mixing opinions?

I recently upgraded to new mixing gear, and this is the first "full band" song of mine I've mixed on it. I want to get this mastered, but I've never had any of my recordings mastered so I don't know if this is of good enough quality that mastering would make a decent improvement (other than just vol...
